From significant business changes to noteworthy product launches, there’s always something new happening in the world of design. In this biweekly roundup, AD PRO has everything you need to know.

Daniel Larsson and Susan Weiss at Emerson Bailey’s Denver showroom.

Emerson Bailey in Bozeman, Montana

Emerson Bailey sets it sights on the Rocky Mountain region

Susan Weiss founded Emerson Bailey in 2016, illuminating a motley trove of Swedish antiques and midcentury and contemporary design pieces. With curator and sourcing director Daniel Larsson, who joined the studio in 2021, Weiss has expanded her footprint beyond the Nyhamnslage, Sweden, showroom with a duo of US galleries in the scenic Rocky Mountains. One of them, in the Denver Design District, is situated in an old firehouse from the early 1900s outfitted with a dozen arched windows and home to striking objects, including a circa-1750 Rococo library table from Sweden.

The other, located in Bozeman, Montana’s Cannery District, is a revamped brick factory that melds exposed wood beams and cement floors, a choice backdrop for such items as a pair of 19th-century Swedish folk art log chairs.

Magazzino Italian Art’s new Robert Olnick Pavilion

Magazzino Italian Art to unveil the Robert Olnick Pavilion

Upstate Art Weekend unfolded in New York last month, but soon there will be another reason to hightail it to Putnam County. Magazzino Italian Art in Cold Spring is expanding its museum campus with the arrival of the Robert Olnick Pavilion on September 14. Designed by Spanish architects Alberto Campo Baeza and Miguel Quismondo, the pavilion’s 13,000 square feet of exhibition space span a café, store, and gallery dedicated to Italian decorative arts, Murano glass, ceramics, and jewelry. The highlight? Gallery 2, the isotropic room, rendered as a precise cube punctuated with corner windows by Campo Baeza. A trifecta of exhibitions—“Mario Schifano: The Rise of the ’60s” (through January 8), “Ettore Spalletti: Parole di Colore” (through January 8), and “Carlo Scarpa: Timeless Masterpieces” (through March 31, 2025)—will be the first to welcome visitors into the concrete-clad structure.

Stair Galleries to present André Leon Talley auction

As the first Black man to be named creative director of Vogue in 1988, the late André Leon Talley (he most recently served as the magazine’s editor at large) was a pioneer who possessed a remarkably flamboyant fashion sense best portrayed by his longtime affinity for capes. His wowing style is the focus of The Collection of André Talley, an auction taking place at Stair Galleries in Hudson, New York, on September 21. Naturally, the lots will showcase Talley’s stash of clothing, handbags, and shoes dating back to the 1980s, but will also include the furniture and accessories that decorated his homes in White Plains, New York, and Durham, North Carolina—where he was raised by his grandmother—such as a fabulous Victorian mahogany throne chair, a chintz-upholstered sofa, and a bevy of giltwood mirrors. Proceeds from the sale will be directed to the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem and the Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in Durham.

Trésor Retrouvé | Collection Claude & François Xavier Lalanne opens on October 4 at Sotheby's Paris.

Newly discovered Les Lalanne sculptures heads to sale

In 2019, Sotheby’s presided over a monumental two-day auction of the late Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne’s wondrous nature-inspired sculptures, as well as the couple’s furniture and objects. But then, in a cinematic twist, nearly 20 of their works were uncovered behind a door that was well-hidden by François-Xavier’s mammoth bronze bulls in Les Lalanne’s Ury, France, abode. These serendipitous finds, including François-Xavier’s surrealist Boîte de Sardines commissioned by Andy Warhol muse Jane Holzer in 1971 and Claude’s ginkgo leaf bench Gong will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s Paris on October 4, in tandem with a public exhibition September 30 through October 3.

Lehrer Architects and Kadre Architects design ADU plan for Los Angeles residents

Lack of housing is one of LA’s biggest crises, but the city of Los Angeles hopes to ameliorate some of those hardships and bureaucratic obstacles with the rollout of You ADU. This single-bedroom standard ADU plan, which LA residents can download for free, was hatched by local studios Lehrer Architects and Kadre Architects and influenced by the former’s sub-$200,000 Starter Home prototypes. Flaunting a simple gabled roof, the all-electric, solar-ready ADU reinforces the notion of indoor/outdoor living with a verdant façade and expansive window. It can be oriented in various ways to not only maximize open spaces, but to offer privacy from the garden and main house. Fashioned out of accessible, off-the-shelf materials, the flexible unit is relatively affordable too, slated to cost between $100,000 to $130,000.
